Here are the good points: lovely old house, fine furnishings, very clean, friendly & social people, comfy bed, great location in town, easy parking. The flipside: tiny shower, creaky floors, you get to hear all your neighbor's business through thin walls (yep, uh oh!), just OK breakfast, no A/C, and the world's tiniest TV. In some countries this would be... More

My husband and I live a fast-paced life and my husband, in particular, works 70+ hours a week so getting "away" is a necessity for us. We went to the Strawberry Creek Inn for a weekday get-a-way and fell in absolute love with Strawberry Creek Inn!! I loved the location, I loved the people, I loved the town. The hammocks... More

Would probably try another place next time (if we ever go back to Idyllwild). Place is nice, Santa Fe room was small but pleasant, although you might want to bring your own pillows if you are used to soft & fluffy under your head at night. Bed was also hard and if that was a "queen", then I'm Queen Latifah!... More

My husband and I came to stay a couple nights the night after we got married. We just got home from our getaway and we're still reeling about how perfect this Bed & Breakfast was. It was SO wonderful. From the second you drive up you can feel the energy of this haven pulling you in. The entire property is... More

I attended a writing workshop here and am dying to go back. Rodney and Ian are fabulous hosts who have created this cozy and comfortable Inn in an idyllic setting. The food was fabulous (but don't plan to stick to your diet). My room was simple yet comfortable and homey. I stayed in the Nancy room. The mattress is great,... More

So close to the congestion and noise of the city yet you feel so far removed in this mountain hideaway. The room was well appointed and comfortable. The common areas in the main bldg are comfortable, warm, and inviting, and the breakfasts unbeatable. Also several real nice restaurants in the town center of Idyllwild and all within walking distance. We... More

We stayed in the evergreen room. It was connected to the main house but also had its own entrance and small patio. It was on the first floor. It was a very cozy room with a big fireplace. The bed was extra comfortable and the sheets were wonderful. The breakfasts were very yummy. We had a peach French toast and... More

A dream come true. Located in the forest just off the road the property has lots of places to relax and unwind with benches, seats, and hammocks under the tall pines. The accommodations were superb, nice comfortable bed, plenty of privacy, and a large roomy home atmosphere where gathering with the others at this B&B is easy. It is a... More

My teenaged son and I had a wonderful time on our first trip to the Inn. Rodney and Ian are very generous and gracious hosts. The breakfasts each morning were scrumptious, and you can expect serious withdrawal symptoms when you return home. We will most definitely return and it can't be soon enough. :)

We stayed in a cozy room in the main building. The breakfasts were incredible: a tasty quiche, homemade berry cornbread, peach French toast and apple sausage. The egg dishes are made with eggs from their own entertaining chickens. This is a terrific place to get away and relax.
